Things I did not like:

    Why wasn't Luthor in red, blue and gold?

Why would he be? Except for Superwoman all the villains are in their opposite number's colors.

    -Calling it "Earth Two"

I thought it was funny. Everyone expects "Earth One" to be the one where the heroes are from. I thought the expressions on the good guys' faces at Luthor's statement was pretty funny.

    -Owlman. The original Earth 3 Owlman is a challenge to make cool, and I felt they went the easy route and didn't do much with the actual idea
    -Owlman's costume

Man, we are just going to have to agree to disagree here. Owlman looked awesome, IMO, and the guy is banging Superwoman. How can he not be cool?

    -Superwoman's being alternate Lois Lane
    -Superwoman's weird sex thing with alternate Jimmy Olson
    -Alternate Jimmy Olson

I had no problem with any of this.

    -Alternate people have hearts on the other sides of their chests?

And here we agree. Don't think it was necessary, not sure why Grant threw it in.

    -Ultraman's throwaway line about their J'onn being a white Martian, again, too easy

Not sure what your problem with it was, exactly.

    -..... Ultraman's secret identity is a pencil mustache

Right. Horned rim glasses are a far more effective disguise.

    -Johnny Quick: junkie

He's from an evil universe, stands to reason one of the bad guys has a truly evil origin.

    -Power Ring: boring
    - lots of deaths, kinda glossed over

And here you do strike good points. They didn't do much with Power Ring; he and Quick are very much junior partners on this team. And yeah, the death count is pretty high; little mention is ever made of the missing jet, and there's no telling how many people died in DC.
